Realized i never posted the final image here. Process video later!
Thanks for all the feedback getting this done and please, let me know what you all think!
Got some comments about the monster looking to similar to the Monsters Inc. orange monster so changed him up a bit. Also playing with some colors and lighting to set the mood.
Colorized the original monster for kicks to see if it differentiated enough from the Monsters Inc.
@heather-boyd thanks! I played with some other compositions and perspectives but over the shoulder from the closest told a better story (I felt) since the protagonist here is the monster and his is the story I’d like to tell. Also provide more options for big color differences and lighting/shadows.
Hey fellow (aspiring) artists! Taking a stab at the hidden challenge with this piece. Pretty straight forward monster hidden in the closet from the kid he’s scared of. Not sure if the concept is too simple or the composition to obvious. I wanted to prominently show the monster (protagonist) and design a shot that would let me play with perspective and deep dark shadows nad highlights (from the TV late at night). Just curious on general thoughts on the main composition or if it feels too “easy”?
Would love to hear what you all have to say and excited to contribute to such an excellent bunch of art!
(first post on the forum, hi everyone!)
This was a great episode; timely and a little terrifying (as I'm in the middle of illustrating a book for literally a lady i know). Luckily i am a graphic designer and a marketer by trade so can lift a lot of the layout, printing, marketing weight but this is my first venture out the gate doing this and...well, we will see how it goes. We are self publishing and doing a kickstarter to cover the production of a small run of books. At this point we are both in the same boat, we want to be able to point at something and simply say "I made a thing". I have a full time job in marketing so this is a "pointing in the direction of the mountain" type gig and a learning exercise for myself as i steer in the general direction of where i want to go.
question: are "caned" or free contract templates online "good enough" for a first time writer and first time illustrator to get? Should we really hire a lawyer to get this right?
